Deep
June 12 through September 7, 2015
at the Museum in the John and Peggy Maximus Gallery
 

In collaboration with World Oceans Day and other marine themed Museum exhibits, the Maximus Gallery will display images of undersea life. We will be drawing on our library collections of bound expedition works.

Fish and crustacean prints from the famous HMS Challenger oceanographic expedition of 1872-1876 will be shown. Specimens were collected from different depths of water all over the world and the ocean floor mapped for the first time proving that life existed on the deep sea bed.

Edward S. Curtis
Luminous Portraits of American Indian Life
October 9, 2015 through January 4, 2016
at the Museum in the John and Peggy Maximus Gallery

Curtis’ monumental project, the depiction of the daily life of Indian tribes from New Mexico to Alaska, consumed him for thirty years. The influence of western landscape painting was evident in his subjective approach and artistic style. His carefully arranged compositions and use of light created the sense of a timeless presence.
